Wishing you well, Tony. My garage is now open if needed. Plenty of bike parking space here too, plus room for tents in the front yard, lots of camping near by, and the coast is cool.

+1 on the XJ 650 or 750. I had a 650. Maximan had a 750. Same frame size, 750 seat was lower, 750 has an anti-dive front fork, weight about the same. Both great bikes. 750 looks better, IMO.

Those look like the ticket. Mine were $10 off eBay. They make the bike more visible from the front, but don't help where I need them to.
